Why Groups?

We are convinced that growing in the faith and knowledge of Jesus requires spending time with one another—sharing life, studying the Bible, and doing ministry together. That's why we place a strong emphasis on groups at Gateway Downtown. Most of our groups are Growth Groups, but there are other groups that might meet from time to time.

What Are Growth Groups?

Growth groups are ongoing, small groups of people (usually 8 to 12) who gather to study a certain topic or book of the Bible. Don’t worry—there are no experts in these groups. We are all learners and everyone is welcome, whether you grew up in church or not.

Growth groups are open to everyone whether they are members and regular attenders or just people who want to explore more about faith and Jesus.
